2018: The Year of the SAP End User

Things have been pretty busy at ASUG University this year, with lots of firsts and forward progress on our training courses. I wanted to share how 2018 is going to be even bigger, and how ASUG U will deliver more valuable knowledge to even more SAP end users.

For sure, there are hundreds of thousands of SAP end users across the globe: SAP claims 365,000 customers worldwide and 87 percent of the Global 2000.

We believe a lot of those SAP end users would benefit from ASUG U training—newbies who need the basics, veterans who want an SAP skills refresh, business analysts or managers who need to see the big picture of SAP, and experienced SAP pros who want to get comfortable as they move to SAP S/4HANA.

What We Learned in 2017

Since we’re focused entirely on the end users, ASUG U had to pioneer quite a few things to successfully deliver hands-on workshops in 2017. Lots of our success has to do with the quality and experience of our instructors (most with 25+ years teaching enterprise systems). It’s also due to the unique conceptual and hands-on content, and the way attendees experience that in a simplified environment and the live SAP systems we’ve created.

The results were a bit more than just impressive:

  • 100% of attendees who took our survey said they would recommend the course to friends or colleagues.
  • 100% of attendees who took our survey thought that they got the value they expected and more out of the workshops.

But what makes it all worth it is when attendees send you notes like this:

“I feel the three-day workshop is the best training on SAP that I've had since starting on the implementation team three years ago. The instructors were all so enthusiastic and seem to be truly dedicated to providing SAP end users with a great training experience.”

2018 Is Already Here

ASUG U will be bringing that content, delivered by those same amazing instructors, to several cities across North America in 2018, so check out the workshop schedules. If your city isn’t on the list yet, send us a note via the submission form at the bottom of our ASUG U homepage to be notified when we’ll be in a city near you.

I guarantee you that there’s something for every type of end user in your company. 2018 is the year of the SAP end user. Let ASUG U help U take your end-user skills and adoption of SAP to the next level. Happy New Year!
